A catalogue of items from the large collection of the late Stanley Scott. Includes woodcuts, drawings, and photographic prints all done by Eric Gill. Arthur Eric Rowton Gill (February 22, 1882 - November 17, 1940) was a British sculptor, typographer and engraver. In 1925 he produced the Perpetua font, based on Classical Roman lettering, for Morison, who was working for the Monotype Corporation. This was followed by the Gill Sans typeface, based on the sans-serif lettering originally designed by Johnston for London Underground. Apart from Gill Sans, which is his most famous creation and lasting legacy to typography, Gill also designed the typefaces Perpetua (1926), Golden Cockerel Roman (1929), Solus (1929), Joanna (based on work by Granjon; 193031), Aries (1932), Floriated Capitals (1932), Bunyan (1934), Pilgrim (recut version of Bunyan; 1953) and Jubilee (1934).
